Irving Materials has acquired the ready mixed production assets of Transit-Mix Concrete Co. from Kim and Ann Anger, who had kept the Owensboro, Ky., business under family ownership as it approached its 75th year. Transit-Mix is strategic to an IMI operation in Owensboro— part of the company’s 18-plant, western Kentucky network. A customer guide to plant locations indicates that Transit-Mix brings IMI to 49 concrete sites in Kentucky, from northeast-central markets to the Mississippi River.

“The acquisition fits strategically with existing IMI facilities in markets adjacent to Owensboro and will allow IMI to continue Transit-Mix Concrete’s tradition of offering outstanding products and services to customers,” affirms IMI CEO Earl Brinker.
